Windows welcome light, warmth, and beauty to your house. They keep you safe no matter what the weather is outside. Along with safety and security, they also add to the aesthetics of the home.
Any realtor in the world would agree that a house with windows is worth more than a window-less mansion. Ample windows make the interiors stuffy, so it is essential to have proper
cross-ventilation windows. A properly maintained window also adds residual value to your house. But why are we talking about windows?
Many people think that windows are a traditional necessity, but it’s not true. With the fast-changing world, we are experiencing different problems in maintaining a peaceful center in
our houses and good windows are the solutions for most of them.
Condensation, warping, cracking, rotting wood, sill, and frame gap, faulty functionality, and many other issues directly impact your home’s expenses and efficiency. They may lead to massive energy consumption by house thermostats.
Imagine this – You bought a beautiful vintage house with a fantastic view outside, and a pond nearby, and you can’t wait to enjoy the beautiful scenery. But then you see this malfunctioning rusty old window that just feels like salt and pepper in a cake! Would you like them covered with bulky thick curtains?
There are many issues that you may face with windows, and it seems like a huge expense. But Chosen Wood Window Maintenance has been fixing all kinds of problems since 1998. Our team has been doing it cleanly and effortlessly. Let’s find out how?
Practical and affordable window maintenance by Chosen WWM
Chosen Wood Window maintenance has been renovating vintage, modern, and historic wood windows for two decades. Our roots are set in one mantra that every user loves.
Even minor window problems are costing not just money but time and effort because you have been replacing the whole set with a new one. While this is a typical approach everywhere,
CWWM has been repairing and restoring the broken and worn-out parts of your window with just a fraction of what a whale replacement would cost.
This has been beneficial for nature, users, and our team because we love doing it for you.
We believe in repairing rather than replacing.
We have been restoring many historic and vintage buildings in many states while also maintaining their beautiful natural look.
Take St. Edward’s Seminary, for example. It was founded in 1930, and its windows are still holding strong. Its windows were falling apart. But we restored the original feel and touch of the window by repairing it part by part and also maintaining the strength to last another 90 years. If you have a close look at those windows, they closely resemble their old feel but with improved functionality.
We maintain the heritage and the strength.
We have seen people experiencing dry rot and seal failure more than any other issues. More wetness can bring dry rot and temperature changes, especially when it’s hot outside, getting
seal failure. We have often seen people opting for a complete window replacement.
But these are reoccurring problems, and you can’t change your window every now and then. To save you time and effort, Chosen tries to analyze the exact cause of the problem and fixes and restores the part that is causing the problem.
Our solutions prove to save you money by reusing what’s good and providing a long-term solution.
We only replace what’s necessary.
Manufacturing replacement parts produces more waste, uses non-renewable sources, and pollutes the environment. Forests are cleared in huge masses to produce these window
Do you know why old windows had such long working life than the new ones? It is because they have aged well. Old wood windows provide much more working and energy efficiency than new wood can provide. Repairing those windows will provide more efficiency, energy conservation, style, and value.
So we as responsible citizens can opt only to replace what’s necessary and repair the rest. Chosen chooses to bring more nature-friendly, valuable solutions to you.
We love mature nature.
Apart from storing old wooden windows, we also repair and restore modern wooden or steel windows. In the haste of repairing, our team doesn’t forget the essence of your style.
